Hey all, so I just installed my 1" wheel spacers this weekend and had my alignment done this afternoon. driving home I noticed the driverside rear wheel/tire had a slight wobble.

When I got home I jacked up the rear and got underneath to inspect. The tie-rod ends all seem tight and snug, the wheel doesn't move side to side or back and forth so doesn't seem like its bearings. when I spin the tire, you can tell it's moving uneven when I look down on it from the top. Anyone have any clue what could be causing this?

Just any clue? Bent wheel. Non-hub-centric spacers.
So just did a test by switching the rear driver side wheel with the passenger. Get the same outcome with the passenger side wheel so I know the wheel isn't bent. Does this sound like a bent axel?

the movement is just about 1/2 inch or less but definitely enough to notice when driving.

Put the spacer in the front and see what happens. if the wobble moves to the front, it's your spacer.
